A new musical by David Cornue, Sam Holtzapple, Warren Loy and Chris Todd. When the NYC smoking ban eliminates the need to dry clean smoky clothing, a ruined Korean dry cleaner seeks her revenge on the man behind the ban: Mayor Bloomberg. Smoking Bloomberg ("Best of Fest Award" - 2006 New York Musical Theatre Festival) is about a Korean dry cleaner named Kim who seeks her revenge on Mayor Michael Bloomberg after his NYC smoking ban ruins her business. Full of pissed-off New Yorkers, a Korean love interest (and man-whore) also named Kim, a frequently arrested Arab, and a certain really rich white mayor, the story uses the smoking ban as a springboard to satirize our the loss of personal freedom in the post-9/11 world, and is a biting, irreverent lampoon of American democracy. And yes. It's a musical.
